What’s in a Name? Changing the Name of a Company in China
Zone(s): China ¦ Sector(s): Company Names
The procedure for changing the name of a company in China turns out to be quite complex, though it is far simpler, for example, than changing one’s business scope. Because a company’s name is displayed on several types of official documents (such as its business license, company chop and tax registration certificate), any changes to this information must be filed with each respective governing authority. It is crucial that companies duly prepare for each step in the process prior to filing an initial application, as deadlines at later steps are incurred by the completion of earlier ones.
